The recall notice advises that the front brake mounting hardware may have been under torqued and the incorrect torque tool used during manufacture.

What are the hazards?

The mounting hardware could become loose, reducing braking ability and posing an accident risk to the driver and other road users.

What should affected owners do?

Affected owners should contact their nearest authorised Volvo Group Australia Dealership to arrange an inspection and repair of the vehicle.

The recall comes a year after nearly 7000 Mack Trucks were recalled in Australia over a separate brake system fault.
